Howard Willens and the The American Scholar


Recommended Posts

These guys never give up do they? Its a sickness unto death with them.

They will never admit they were wrong, and they will never stop trying to convince the public they were right.

Howard Willens has now polluted the pages of The American Scholar with his latest defense of the WR. Having a former Warren Commission lawyer write in a journal called The American Scholar is a contradiction in terms.

Hey James:

You and others may be interested in portions of the attached [link to a PDF document], an oral history Richard Mosk, Willen's associate in defense of the WC workings, gave to his son, Matthew Mosk, "an Emmy-winning reporter and investigator for ABC news..." in November of 2011. Mosk's ramblings about his time with the Warren Commission begin on page 30.

Thanks for that Gary. He called WIllens the Deputy Chief Counsel , which I always had him pegged as.

Boy all of these guys read the same script. Well, we did not have the autopsy pics, (which they did) and we did not know about the CIA Castro plots, but heck, we got it right anyway.

He essentially admits that they were working from the FBI conclusions about both cases, the murder of Oswald and the murder of Kennedy. And they went from there.

He does not even understand the sick humor in that today. In other words, trusting Hoover about anything dealing with the Kennedys. Yech.

To be clear, Mosk died earlier this year. He was a prominent judge here in southern California. And his father was an even more prominent judge, with a courthouse named after him. Mosk was also buddies with Bugliosi. If my memory is correct, Bugs and Mosk delivered a presentation to the L.A. Bar Association shortly after the release of Bugs' book. It would have been interesting to be there if only to see if anyone spoke up and challenged them on some of their nonsense. (I suspect no one did.)
